Brand new, made in the U.S.A. in the Luxe Radio workshop, to exact Vintage Specs. This is a perfect clone of the original Sprague Black Beauty capacitor found in the most collectible Gibson guitars made between 1960 and 1970.
"Woman Tone" refers to that slightly muffled neck pickup tone with a sweet midrange moan. Just listen to Eric Clapton's tone on "White Room" or "Sunshine of Your Love" and you will hear exactly that.
The .015uf capacitor rolls off less high end on your tone control compared to the standard .022uf value which has a slightly darker effect. The result is a sweeter, more transparent tone when you roll the tone control back. .015uf is recommended for the neck pickup tone control with a .022uf for the bridge pickup tone control.
Each cap is hand wound on a 1932 Sprague Specialties Co. Winding Machine replica using exact vintage spec aluminum foil and paper film. They're hand soldered, hot vacuum impregnated with pure castor oil and beeswax, hand cast in oven-proof thermoplastic, and hand-marked with an old-school offset marking press. Includes vintage style spaghetti tubing on each lead, as pictured.
Don't be fooled by other cheaper imitation "look-a-like" caps that aren't even paper and oil!Luxe capacitors are fresh from the time machine and authentic inside AND out. Ships in a plain box with no extras.
